Course programme

It is recommended that the course and experience is based at the client’s site thus allowing candidates to gain practical experience on equipment that they are already familiar with. An on site meeting room suitable for teaching purposes would be necessary for the theory presentation.

The 3 day course combines theory and practice in a similar format to our ‘Authorised Person’ Course. The content of the course is as follows:

  • Statutory Electrical Regulations
  • Electrical Hazards and Precautions
  • Understanding of Schematic Power Distribution Diagrams
  • Switching Schedules and Records
  • Maintenance Requirements for High Voltage Equipment
  • Arrangement of Switch gear
  • Safe Isolation and Earthing of Power Distribution Systems
  • Permit to Work Procedures
  • Cable Identification and Spiking
  • Appreciation of Fault Levels
  • Parallel Operation of Electrical Systems

Assessment: After the candidate as undergone Mentoring and has built up a portfolio of experience, ICA has a structured assessment procedure. This involves an interview panel consisting of an ICA SAP Mentor and the clients Safety Advisor or Senior Manager. If the candidate passes this assessment they are eligible to become a Senior Authorised Person.

Time Required: 3 Days initial training with approximately 60 hours experience with a ‘SAP Mentor’ in the workplace for Low Voltage SAP status, then a further 60 hours Mentoring to attain High Voltage SAP status. It usually takes 12 months to gain enough experience to become a High Voltage Senior Authorised Person.

Number of Candidates / Session: 2 to 4
